russia probe turns to Twitter Executives from Twitter are set to appear before the House and Senate intelligence committees on Thursday to answer questions about Russian election meddling.

The Senate's intelligence committee is expected to ask whether disinformation spread by Russian Twitter accounts -- meant to disparage Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign -- entered legitimate Twitter news stories.

In a closed meeting, the panel may also ask if Twitter took any steps to curtail propaganda, and whether automated Twitter accounts were used to improve the Google rankings of false news items, Politico reported Thursday.

Facebook executives were questioned Wednesday over that social media platform's role in the campaign.
